Twenty-one years have passed since the Beck Depression Inventory (BDI) was first described by Beck et al. [16]. Over the years, two important reviews about the psychometric properties of the BDI have been written by Beck and Beamesderfer [15] and Mayer [123]. The former review stressed aspects of reliability and validity, whereas the latter review also compared the BDI with other self-report measures of depression.
